Ahead of Nigeria’s AFCON 2019 clash against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa, Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo is confident the team will win in Johannesburg to reclaim the country’s pride after losing the first leg 2-0 in Uyo last year, reports.

The CD Leganes player, who has been earning praises in the Spanish LaLiga of late told exclusively that the players know the task ahead of them.

“The game against South Africa is a very important one because it’s a game we have to win, not just for our pride, but also for the country and to put us back in the Nations Cup come next year.

“We have what it takes, the technical crew provide us with more than enough technical hands to know our opponents very well, to know how they play and how they move around. It has been very vital and has been helping us all this while,” Omeruo said.

The Chelsea loanee further assured Nigerians that the team has enough capable hands to upstage South Africa despite playing away from home.

“We have the capable hands to win this game; it doesn’t matter where we are playing, we are going to give everything to ensure we get the maximum three points,” Omeruo concluded.
